. >> reporter: who could forget that wink. then-governor sarah palin winking during her 2008 debate with fellow vice presidential nominee joe biden. not just once, but some half a dozen times. then there's senator lloyd benson's dig at senator dan quayle in 1988. >> i knew jack kennedy. jack kennedy was a friend of mine. senator, you're no jack kennedy. >> reporter: memorable moments, but hardly game-changers. while presidential debates can affect the outcome of an election, vice presidential debates like this week's upcoming match-up between vice president biden and his gop challenger paul ryan, are a different animal. >> you need to be able to see that each vice presidential candidate has hit the standard of readiness, that they will be ready in an emergency in a national crisis to be able to step into the oval office and to take the reins of the presidency. but beyond that in terms of the actual debate itself, unless there is a star killing or star catching moment, it rarely changes the course of the debate. >> reporter: democratic strategist donna bazille says the first rule is to do no har

, i love it even more. that was a recent debate moment between alaska governor sarah palin, and joe biden back in 2008. in earlier interviews, sarah palin had called joe biden obiden. bringing back the classics brings me back to tonight. the presidential debate is looming. the economy will dominate. but look at what is also up for debate. check out segment four. health care. if there is a potential achilles heel where both president obama and mitt romney are vulnerable, it is on this one, folks. two words. obama care, and romney care. and then there is also romney's current health care proposals too up for debate. let's bring in elizabeth cohen to lay out these plans. because this could really unfold in a whole bunch of different ways. the plans are like this. there are so many similarities and differences, exactly how do they differ. >> and voters were so passionate about health because it affects all of us. of all the six segments this is the most interesting one, i'm biased, but still i think people are going to care about this one. let's lay out the basic differences between the

-prepared for this debate. i would remind you, he didn't do that well against sarah palin, so -- but also, paul ryan is a real policy wonk. he knows all the details. so if i were advising paul ryan, and i am not, they just haven't asked for it, i would say be careful that you don't come across as somebody who gets down into the weeds about omb numbers and cbo and sequestration. a lot of these things that the average americans are really not familiar with. he wants to be clear. joe is a very -- excuse me, the vice president is a very attractive guy and if i were him, i would be playing on that as well. >> senator, two things, if i may. one is the ongoing situation regarding the death of ambassador christopher stevens in libya. lots of vagueness about what really went on in the days leading up to this and indeed, afterwards. what is your assessment of where we are now? >> well, let me tell you what's not vague, and that is five days after, five days after what was very quickly determined by the intelligence committee as a terrorist attack, they trotted out our ambassador to the u.n. to every major new

roberts and this is not to mince words, a stunt. they had sarah palin co-host well after she ran for vice president. gma is in talks to have michelle obama co-host. they're totally focused on getting their husbands elected president. they should be interviewed by all means, but that seat should be reserved for journalists. have oprah or stephen colbert, but ann shouldn't be next to george stephanopoulos. they don't need to do this to get attention. >>> the weather channel caused turbulence by announcing it will name big winter storms like hurricanes. the official reason is to make it easier to communicate the threat from storms as they develop, but it smells like a gimmick. especially with a list of names ranging from brutus to caesar to zeus. they say the criteria how storms get named could confuse people or could serve as a branding exercise for the weather channel. >>> and jennifer livingston gained some fame, anchor in lacrosse, wisconsin, ticked off by an e-mail from a viewer saying her ample frame did not provide a suitable example for young girls. i will hope you will reconsider yo

'll call you jennifer. you were the stand-in for sarah palin when joe biden was prepping in 2008. we were all wondering what's going on behind the scenes. how important is it this prepping for debate now? >> oh, it's huge. i mean, can you look at books and study policy papers all you want. there is no substitute for standing behind a podium and having everything but the kitchen sink thrown at you and formulate phrases to communicate. there's no substitute, and no one loves to do it. no one wants to do it, although i must say joe biden was very game in 2008 to do it. >> tell us what it looks like. who is actually in the room? this is a pretty secretive process zoosh yeah, i mean, i don't know what they're doing this year, but i can tell you in 2008 they have the policy people there. you remember that biden and obama were just sort of marrying as a team, and so we had some obama people and some biden people in the room. the folks who know the issues extremely well. the room itself is set up -- the stage exactly like the debate will be, so when you do the mock debates, you're really in chara

debater, but he's also rusty. the last debate he had was against sarah palin. i think debating paul ryan and sarah palin are two completely different animals. and we haven't seen him do a lot of debating. so, you know, let's hope that he doesn't show up as rusty. if not, it will really build on republican momentum. and i think it will change the tone of this race. two debates where the republicans can really change it. >> a lot of the president's supporters didn't think he spent enough time preparing for this debate. romney spent a lot more time preparing than the president did. how much time between now and next thursday should the vice president spend? get rid of his campaigning and start practicing, practicing, practicing a debate against paul ryan? >> look, first of all, mitt romney's been in dress rehearsal for opening night on broadway for five years. there's no way you can take that much time off. but that aside he had a great debate performance and i don't want to downplay that. it was a good debate performance. but i think the president should have put enough time on his schedul

romney -- i understand what you're saying politically, but i think it's like sarah palin and biden, she got through and everybody said she did well. >> don't you think it's up to romney to tell -- >> i just want to say that clearly tonight, both candidates are the underdogs. who knows, there's room for both. but there is a difference between a zinger, which is what small campaigns think of their own candidate when they think he's small, but you want to demonstrate strength, and saying this is howly lead the country, those are the moments i paid for this microphone, and it can change the debate. >> mitt romney is closing the gap, it's getting closer in major swing states. stay tuned for that. you've been busy for a dead man. after you jumped ship in bangkok, i thought i'd lost you. >>> surfing is my life now. but who's going to .... >>> tell the world that priceline has even faster, easier ways to save you money. . . on hotels, flights & cars? you still have it. >>> i'll always have it. so this is it? >>> we'll see where the waves take me. sayonara, brah!
